Another Year Gone by the Wayside
Sunday, February 26, 2017      4 comments

It's been a year. That pretty much sums things up. A number of physical challenges (four surgeries and a nasty case of shingles) have put me off my game but hopefully I'm past the worst of it and I'll be moving forward. Still struggling wi... Read more
Feels better this time

Although the scale might not back me up, this Biggest Loser round really is better than the last. I'm more aware of what I'm doing this time...which doesn't mean I'm doing things the right way, just with more awareness. Hunger or boredom. ... Read more

Yup, here it is New Year's Day. By the way - happy New Year! I've actually been looking forward to turning over the date on the calendar and using this as incentive for turning over that new leaf. I've always kind of wished that SP had a ... Read more

Doing my best to be productive today. Wrote out my menus for the week then did the grocery shopping for most of the week. Despite being as efficient as I could be that managed to take most of the morning. The rest was spent making pinwheels. My ... Read more
Moving beyond the challenge
Tuesday, November 25, 2014      3 comments

Yup, Mrs. Crabby-pants, that's me today. Not sure what's going on but I'm really not a pleasant person today. And I REALLY don't want to be this way...but there you go. Didn't sleep well last night, so I'm going to blame that, mainly b... Read more
